Personal Alternative Professional

Hi, I’m Bonnie an alternative down to earth celebrant. It’s exciting performing wedding ceremonies for couples with independent styles, creative energies, and alternative ideas. I’m delighted to carry out rituals from the unique and quirky non-religious to pagan handfasting. Your wedding ceremony is about the inner essence of your relationship. A statement of sharing what you care about to the outer world. You don’t have to have an expensive ceremony for it to be meaningful. “Why fit in when you were born to stand out” There is no right way to get married and celebrate it. Do you want to elope? Do you want a same-sex wedding? Maybe a registry style/budget wedding or a fancy fabulous small intimate personal wedding

We can design an alternative simple wedding ceremony you’ve always wished for. Wedding ceremonies should be luscious moments of love, laughter and making amazing memories. It’s rewarding working with couples who feel confident and comfortable on their wedding day. One of the perks of my job is been around inspiring, quirky, soulful, non-traditional everyday people. Make your ceremony filled with a loving, harmonious atmosphere. Laughter and gratitude is a powerful antidote for any wedding day jitters. Every couple should feel enchanted, plus drop-dead gorgeous, and specially LOVED, oh la la. Additional elements such as hand-fasting is one of my favourite, its a beautiful heartwarming old tradition.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Wedding Ceremonies

I believe your wedding ceremony has to be a true reflection of your own ethical style and values. Wedding ceremonies come in many forms, some are big glorious rituals tons of fun or small intimate moments with just the two lovers.


You must lodge a Notice of Intent to Marry at least one month before your wedding date. I can assist you with lodging this form.

RegistryStyle/Budget Weddings

I offer a fabulously stylish registry style/ budget ceremony. It is a simple, stylish, elegant and affordable wedding service.


An Elopement Ceremony is definitely a wedding ceremony with simplicity and romance as a unique essence. Saving money, avoiding the fuss, keeping things intimate simple and just for love.


This wedding ceremony is one designed especially for you and your partner, including writing your own vows.

Same Sex Weddings

I would be honoured and over the moon to help with your same-sex wedding as I believe love belongs to all.

"Nic and I got married by Bonnie in a very intimate and small setting just off Port Douglas. Bonnie from the day we met her was so incredibly friendly, warm and down to earth. She made the legal side of our day so carefree and relaxed and an absolute joy. The ceremony was short and perfect and Bonnie's words were wonderful and so well suited to Nic and I. There was never any pressure, the day went entirely as we wished, and as perfect as we could have ever hoped for. Thanks so much Bonnie!!"

"I highly recommend Bonnie as a wedding celebrant! We were so frazzled by the paperwork and she eased our minds and made it so simple. We had only communicated by email and never met in person as we eloped for our wedding. Nothing was a drama, she made our vows perfectly and tailored them to our style. The day of our wedding we were so relaxed with her as our celebrant, she was so bubbly, kind, patient and calm. Our day was made so special and we couldn't imagine having anyone else marry us. It was just perfect. Thank you Bonnie."
